Injured by a defective Product?

Las Vegas Defective Medical Device Lawyers

From the diagnostic process through treatment and recovery, it is common that many different types of medical devices will be used to pinpoint and heal a condition or illness.

While some patients may only require the use of medical devices in the short term, others with more serious injuries may need medical devices for life.

Unfortunately, medical devices and equipment can be defective and cause patients to develop far more severe, potentially fatal injuries. In these cases, injured patients may have a strong personal injury claim against the responsible party – whether it is the maker of the medical device, the doctor who prescribed it, or the nurses and technicians who maintained the device.

Building a case against the party responsible for a defective medical device requires the help of an experienced law firm that can build a strong case that will produce the financial results you deserve. That law firm is Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen.

What Are the Most Common Types of Defective Medical Devices?

Medical devices may fail to properly work as a result of a design flaw, a manufacturing error, a mistake made by a doctor during implantation, or as a result of improperly sterilized equipment.

While the Food and Drug Administration has stepped in and issued strict “black box” warning – indicating the most serious level of FDA warning that the product may cause serious injury or death – other warnings or complete recalls for some of the most dangerous defective medical products may remain on the market, or in use by the individual who has not been made aware of its consequences.

The most common defective medical devices include:

  • Artificial Joints
  • Breast Implants
  • Defibrillators
  • Gadolinium Dyes
  • Heart Valves
  • Hip Replacements
  • Insulin Pumps
  • Intrauterine Devices, or IUDs
  • IVC Filters
  • Kidney Dialysis Filters
  • Knee Joint Replacements
  • Pacemakers
  • Shoulder Replacements
  • Stints
  • Surgical Robots
  • Transvaginal Mesh

These medical devices may be produced by a variety of different manufacturers, and our lawyers are extremely knowledgeable about which medical devices have been reported as defective.
